My self-summary
I'm either a cynic or a chronically disappointed idealist, but most likely the latter.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in higher education and am passionate about it. I'm in a graduate program for it. I am sometimes playing in a band, reading lots of books, and alternating between a hermit and social butterfly.
I’m really good at
Laughing and making people laugh. Over-thinking things. Breaking the ice. Inventing cocktails based on what is laying around.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Coffee and Manhattans

The Great Gatsby, Catch 22, almost anything Vonnegut, Hitchhiker's Guide, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Foundation series, On The Road, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and I need to reread The Stranger because I understand absurdism better now (addendum: reread it and it totally made more sense now that I know everything is pointless) If Walls Could Talk: An Intimate History of the Home, How To Win Friends and Influence People

I'm an amateur history nerd.

The Strokes, The Beatles, Pavement, The Jicks, Dinosaur Jr., Guided By Voices, Sonic Youth, Vampire Weekend, Mike Adams, Good Luck, Talking Heads, Television, Kanye West, Gang Starr, Beastie Boys, Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, My Bloody Valentine, The White Stripes, Green Day, The Stone Roses, Blur, Oasis, Dinner, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Graham Coxon, Jawbreaker, The Promise Ring, The Velvet Underground, The Go! Team, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

The last song I listened to on repeat was Do You Still Hate Me by Jawbreaker.
The six things I could never do without
1) Long conversations
2) Music! Playing and listening
3) Laughter
4) Books because I want to trick people into thinking I'm smart
5) Self-deprication
6) Obviously the internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be the best version of me, wishing I could fly, wishing I would win the lottery despite my unwillingness to gamble, whatever book I read last, that stupid thing I said seven years ago
On a typical Friday night I am
Being boring or drunk, but not both. Sometimes I curl up and read a book and sometimes I get gussied up and hit a party.
You should message me if
You sort of like that cats are assholes.

You think the fact that I asked for Gibbons' Decline and Fall for Christmas is sort of cool.

You like absurdism
